Fortnite surpasses $1b in lifetime spending on App Store alone

Epic's battle royale sees mobile spending rise with Google Play launch

Fortnite's mobile version has reached over $1 billion in lifetime player spending across iOS and Google Play, according to a new report by Sensor Tower.

It's worth noting that up until last month, Fortnite has only been available either through the App Store on iOS, or through Epic Games directly on Android, meaning that Sensor Tower's estimates do not account for spending in the game through Epic's launcher -- only through the two storefronts.

However, with the game's recent launch on Google Play plus an increase in overall game time due to COVID-19 stay-at-home orders, spending across both store reached $44.3 million in April, up from $23.3 million on the App Store alone in March and $35.4 million on the App Store in April of 2019.

In fact, Fortnite has crossed the $1 billion in spending threshold on the App Store alone, even without the months-worth of spending that's taken place on Google Play -- estimated to be about $937,000.
